Blue Point Brewing's Summer Ale has a delicious golden taste. In addition to traditional barley malt; a substantial portion of wheat malt is added to the mix giving this brew a unique tartness that's not found in many beers today. A small amount of lemon is added with one other "special" ingredient that all combine together to produce a light, thirst-quenching, citrus flavor microbrew enjoyed by all on a hot, Long Island Summer day.

Leighton (10675) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours a light yellow with a thin, fizzy head. Weak nose of wheat and some mild citrus. Flavor is light and crisp, some hints lemony and tartness, along with some metallic notes. Very light body, very bubbly and, as I said, crisp. Nothing special but probably refreshing on a hot day. (I drank it in late November.)

hopscotch (9041) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2005
Bottle... Clear, hay-colored ale with a small, frothy, white head. Small, creamy, white head. Good retention and tall, thunderhead lacework. The flavor is well-balanced and mirrors the light aroma... strawy, citrusy and yeasty. Light-bodied and thin with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, lightly bitter finish.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2006
I like most of Blue Point’s beers so I thought I’d pick up a growler of this... big mistake. Pale golden, thin white head. Lightly wheaty and malty with a hint of toast. In the mouth though, that toast turns to an acrid charred bitterness. Very strange brew, and not in a good way. Highly forgettable.
